Expert Answer:

Centre of gravity is a point at which the gravitational force on a body effectively acts.

It is the sum of the gravitational force acting on all the individual atoms of the body.

You can think of a body made up of a large number of small elements. Each of these elements is pulled down by the earth. A single  point at which a force  equal to the sum of these forces acts, is called the centre of gravity.
